FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Christmas is coming a little early for many kids this year.
The Fort Wayne Police Department's Victim's Assistance office opened its "Santa's Workshop" Tuesday.
The Indiana Pacers and Fort Wayne Mad Ants donated hundreds of toys for the program.
"Santa's Workshop" allows kids who use victim's assistance services to pick out toys for Christmas.
"It's been a lot of fun having families come in with their kids and they get to come in and pick a toy completely theirs brand new. I think a lot of times when the families come in they're so surprised and they're overwhelmed with emotions that someone actually cared that much about them to help make Christmas possible," said Jessica Crozier, Victim's Assistance director.
Kids who use Victim's Assistance can pick out a toy from now until they run out.
